It is very hard to do something that we know is right if it will get us in trouble with our friends. Saint Sergius the Martyr knew that admitting to being a Christian would ruin his friendship with the emperor, but he knew that it was the right thing to do. Do you do what you know is right even if your friends aren't doing it? Are you willing to stand up for your beliefs?
Dear Lord, please help me to become stronger in my Christian faith. Give me the strength and courage to stand up for what is right no matter what my friends will think.
